For the Bitcoin Day Ahead
Bitcoin would need to avoid a fall through the pivot level at $24,126 to bring the first major resistance level at $25,396 into play.
Support from the broader market would be needed for Bitcoin to break out from Friday’s high $24,802.0.
Barring an extended crypto rally, the first major resistance level would likely cap any upside.
In the event of another extended crypto rally, Bitcoin could test resistance at $26,000 before any pullback. The second major resistance level sits at $26,073.
Failure to avoid a fall through the $24,126 pivot would bring the first major support level at $23,449 into play.
Barring another extended crypto sell-off, Bitcoin should steer clear of sub-$23,000 levels. The second major support level sits at $22,179.
